Overall:

other than this current problem I have not had any issues with this car except I had a manual that the cletch kept going out. but my eye domestic has been very good to me. until now the check engine light has been on for over 6 months now. plugged it in and code says its getting too much O2 its been having problems with jerky shifting and RPMs going up past 5 while on the freeway even in cruise control. it also died several times while going up hill. last week was going 70 on freeway and all the sudden decelerates and would only spratically let me accelerate. it wouldnt shift just raved the RPMs higher and higher. pulled over and parked it as it gradually came to a stop as it would not accelerate anymore. I bought carb cleaner and sprayed it into the throttle body which seemed to fix the problem after burning off the carbon. sounded normal again and I was so happy. go to get back on the freeway and as I made it to 40 mph it starts all over this time I couldnt get it back above 20 and had to drive down the emergency lane while it jerked and wouldnt shift and barly accelerate. so I pulloff again this time I parked at a restraunt the owner asked me to move so go to start it and it wont even crank. Im at a loss of what to do. please help.

Great Car For The Money. — Great car overall. Interior is spacious and comfortable. The automatic headlights are very convenient and the heated seats work very well. The heated mirrors are a very handy feature during the winter. The factory Audiophile sound system is great for a factory stereo.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Extremely comfortable, loads of power and trunk space.

Cons: MPG's leave a bit to be desired. Rear visibility could be better.

Cons: None

As Good Or Better Than Camry Or Accord — nice handling, good gas mpg, solid ride, quiet when at cruising speed. had an issue with the rear brakes but i think it was the dealer who screwed up the job. the only thing gone bad was the thermostat at 85k. been a great car for me

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great ride, handles nice for a sedan, very reliable. 95k miles and runs like new

Cons: Should have standard reverse sensors and outside temp display

Reliable, Safe, Fun Transportation That Still Has Spunk. — This car is arguably the best car, overall,, I have ever owned. Big but small. Slow but quick. She handles everything I ever ask of her with no problems. The Fusion is a well-created, highly-researched car. Ford put more than their fair share of development into making these, and you can feel it when you sit behind the wheel. I would ask for a tad more power, but the reliability more than makes up for it. Everything I ever strived for in my 90s cars (non-leaking moon roof, fog lights with running lamps, well-located center console) comes stock on this car. I love it, in and out. The only detractors that come to mind are the price of maintenance (a brake job all the way around, just parts, is about $300+), the easily broken thermostat (two weeks after I got it), the super-touchy electronic throttle, and the lack of a 6th gear. Mine is a manual, and, at 70 mph, in overdrive, the car sits at around 3K RPM. This is far too high for an economy car.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Handling, Fuel Economy, Braking, Anonymity

Cons: RPMs, Slow, Jumpy Throttle

Perfect For A Young Family That Are Looking For An Economical And Reliable Car To Drive —

Overall, this car has been extremely reliable and economical to run. It has certainly met my needs. There have been no major issues to report on the car at all. The trunk space is very good I think. Currently can comfortable haul a young family of 4 (two small kids in car seats); plenty room for strollers and shopping, or luggage for trips. Performance: If you are looking to get around fast, this isn't your car, wasn't designed for that. Acceleration is OK for a 4 cylinder. 5 speed helps the engine a lot. Build Quality: I would say the build quality is at the standard expected for this car in its class and price range. Its not terrible, but its not European car either. Appearance: I think this car has a someone respectable stance to it. Its not an eye turner for sure, but its no 2006 looking Hyundai either. It has a sporty look and upright stance. Cost of Ownership: As I mentioned above, this car has been great on the wallet to run. Wheels are 16" so tires are cheap, I average 26MPG, not bad for its size and age and maintenance has been economical. Fun Factor: Its not extremely sporty but I think its confidently tuned for a car in its class. I have challenged the car on some roads and I felt that it held up pretty good.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Cheap, Economical, Reliable, Functional

Cons: Not super sporty or fast, but never meant to be
